Def Jam Rapstar (Xbox 360)

Game Profile

Def Jam Rapstar captures the essence of what Hip Hop is all about: the music, the battles and of course...the swagger.

The ultimate emcee experience for video game consoles, Def Jam Rapstar is the only music game that focuses exclusively on Hip Hop. With more than 40 of the greatest Hip Hop songs available at release, Def Jam Rapstar allows you to be the star: by rhyming, using your console camera (PS3 and X360 only), and uploading your video to the fully integrated Def Jam Rapstar community. Def Jam Rapstar also offers you the ability to freestyle over tracks by some of the hottest hip hop producers and upload your freestyle performances for the world to decide how good you really are.

With over 40 songs spanning the history of Hip Hop, Def Jam Rapstar offers a diverse track list with some of the biggest songs in Hip Hop from all music labels

Unlike most other microphone-based games, Def Jam Rapstar features custom, proprietary voice recognition technology that judges lyrical accuracy. In addition to lyrical accuracy, Def Jam Rapstar also measures players pitch and timing to provide your complete score in real time

Utilizing the Xbox Live Vision camera or PlayStation Eye, Def Jam Rapstar allows you to create a video of the performance starring yourself, and edit.

Freestyle mode allows MCs in the making to kick your own lyrics over well-known producers beats, offering a chance to show and prove that you have what it takes
